Delay in Diagnosing Mass in Kidney Puts Client in Chronic Dialysis

Multi Million Dollar Medical Malpractice Settlement


Our client presented to his doctor with complaints of abdominal pain. A CT scan was ordered and the doctor in question interpreted the scans as showing several benign cysts in the right kidney. Two years later, a CT scan revealed a large mass in the right kidney of our patient.

Our lawyers hired a nationally respected doctor who noted that the initial CT scan did not show benign cysts and instead showed signs of cancer. The delay in diagnosis resulting from the misread CT scan allowed the cancer to spread, and doctors eventually removed our client’s kidney. Our client will be forced to endure chronic dialysis for the rest of his life as this had been his only remaining kidney. Rosen Louik & Perry settled this case for several millions of dollars.
